Yes, you read that right. 160 pages all about one album. Even I now know more than I ever wanted to about Ritchie Blackmores amps. Thankfully, the story of the album is rounded out with the villainous buildup to the sacking of Simper and Evans (boo), and the nasty shenanigans surrounding the arrival of Glover and Gillan, setting the album in context with a look at the Concerto recording, as well as the touring, radio and TV appearances, and the piecemeal recording and writing.
Even if you're not that interested in the album, the book looks fantastic, chock full of rare photographs and memorabilia. The late Jon Lord was interviewed specifically for the book, Roger Glover has also provided new insights on the writing of the album and Ian Gillan offers a fresh look at Child In Time. There are also contributions from studio personnel, former managers and others. It's a joy to flick through and savour, even if the resulting album was no "The Book of Taliesyn"!
